Golden Eye is a real blast, brought 007 back. Without the movie, JB may be dead and gone.

I'll go with Goldeneye but, to be perfectly honest, I think Brosnan was the weakest Bond.

Goldeneye is one of my favorite Bonds ever, and I thought the rest of the Brosnans ranged from forgettable to terrible. Being a huge HK/Michelle Yeoh fan, I had high hopes for TND, and found that one to be quite bland.

Goldeneye by a million miles. I'd put it up with the best of Connery.

Tomorrow Never Dies was a great, fun entry, but lacked the emotional sting of Goldeneye.

The World is Not Enough probably has the best opening sequences of any Bond movie, but is on par with the worst of the Roger Moore films.

Die Another Day opens with tremendous promise, but once he heads to Iceland, it's AWFUL. Sadly the finale sticks in my mind much more than the beginning, so this one is at the bottom of my list.

Goldeneye.

I liked Quantum of Solace. But I fear that Campbell will have to come back after a few more Bonds and fix everything again.

GoldenEye - Remains one of the strongest entries in the Bond canon. It really holds up well, and I cast my vote for it.

Tomorrow Never Dies - I thought it was a bit weak initially, but have come around on it. Roger Spottiswoode's brisk pacing keeps things moving along at a brisk clip.

The World Is Not Enough - Denise Richards was horribly miscast, but Sophie Marceau was brilliant. This has my favorite performance by Pierce as Bond, and I love Garbage's title song. More uneven than Tomorrow Never Dies.

Die Another Day - Has one of the greatest first halves of any Bond movie, ever. Unfortunately, it's followed by a mediocre video game. Oh, and Halle Berry's performance is up there with Uma Thurman's in Batman & Robin for "Most Obviously Bad Performance by an Actress Who Thought It Was OK to Act Like an Amateur in a Franchise Picture."

By the way, I also have to give a shout out to the Pierce Brosnan 007 game. I believe it's called "Everything and Nothing." It's basically a lost Bond story, and is often better than the movies he was in. A really awesome game.

I loved it. I wouldn't have bought Richard Kiel returning as Jaws in a movie, but it worked in the video game. Willem Dafoe appearing as a former protege of Max Zorin (Christopher Walken in A View to a Kill) was inspired, and I would have loved to have seen that performance in an actual movie. I'd rank Everything or Nothing over Die Another Day, honestly.
